Maker Forums will have some intermittent downtime soon during an update. Most site updates take only about 1 minute of downtime. However, this maintenance will probably take about 15 minutes.
This maintenance took longer than expected, slightly over 20 minutes of downtime. (I had missed doing an update earlier that became required in order to resolve another system problem.)
The update was ultimately to do two things:
- Fix Amazon “oneboxing” — Amazon URLs were not being displayed with useful content, just as bare URLs. This appears to have been fixed.
- Improve search results and reduce system load from web crawling: Search engines now blocked from indexing non-canonical pages - announcements - Discourse Meta
Thanks for doing this…!
